    Thank you to everyone who put up with my morose postings yesterday. Anyway yesterday we found out that the company DH works for has been put up for sale. It's a large company and the vultures have been circling waiting for the share price to drop, and drop it has. Sales are 75% down than expected, and the board has decided to sell.
    DH works in the IT dept as a Business Analyst. He has been warned that it is unlikely the company as it stands will be around at Christmas. I am worried of course as the employment sittuaton is so dire at the moment. But after feeling sorry for us yesterday, i am much calmer today. I have decided not to keep thinking of different scneraio's and keep positive. I am not going to let my thought process take me somewhere that hasn't happened. I will worry more as the events unfold. At the moment i wont. Concentrate on the day in hand.
    So thank you for reading my very grump posts.
